 Carole KingMusicFeature Album

The home of all-hit music 24 hours a day.
?: How much did they have to pay Coca-Cola to rip off their slogan?

Cover: It’s Russie Poo-Poo-Poo Spooner with a big smile,
alert traffic reports with Ace High, and news with
Mike McClellum each morning.
Note: Spooner’s show featured prank phone calls,
dubbed “Spoonerisms”.

Song note cont:
5. If she’d written this when she was 15, ok.I mean this is
Melanie Safka. But compare “Candles in the Rain” -> “Lay Down”.
Maybe it is a euphemism for sex. My theory is that the key is
for a car. (1) You buy a new set of skates, the key is included.
(2) “Don’t drive no car…”; “… who don’t drive…” [a car?]
36. Presbyterian gathering. The only 2 songs that everybody knew were:
(1) Amazing Grace” and (2) I’d Like to Teach the World…”
